Arbor Day 2021 is April 30th!

Arbor Day is a Day for celebrating trees. In Nebraska in 1872, J Sterling Morton proposed the idea of a day to plant trees, “Arbor Day”. On that day prizes were offered for the county that could plant the most trees properly. One Million trees were said to have been planted on that first Arbor Day. By 1882, States all across the country were celebrating Arbor Day.

Come find a tree to celebrate!

Billings Parks and Rec is celebrating a Spring Arbor Day on May 12th and Fall Arbor Day on September 23rd.

You can find out more about these celebrations on the Billings Parks and Recreation website.
